Legal drama Guilty Minds is currently the talk of the town and it has been making headlines ever since it’s trailer came out.

Created and directed by Shefali Bhushan, the series is strongly rooted in reality. “Guilty Minds, for me, is more than just a series based on two prolific lawyers who fight for justice and their clients. It is a representation of all that I’ve learned about the law through my family. Growing up, the law was a constant topic of discussion at the dinner table at my house and I have always been intrigued by it. So, I wanted to present a realistic take on the legal system and Guilty Minds does that through the varied cases it explores.” said the director.

Shriya Pilgaonkar spoke about what it took to prepare for her role as Kashaf Quaze. The actress said “I remember the first time the audition scenes for Guilty Minds were sent to me and I read the name ‘Kashaf Quaze’; I felt instantly drawn to her. I felt like I knew her, I felt very curious to know her. I knew the kind of emotional range I will get to explore while portraying her. The process of portraying Kashaf was twofold, and one of it was being a lawyer. But for me, the starting point was to create an inner world for her, which I did along with Shefali. I feel like my director knows Kashaf better than Kashaf herself. So, for me, I wanted to create her instincts.”
